The Producer

Located in San Lorenzo in the heart of the Modena countryside, the Zucchi Wine Company draws its origins from a strong and rooted peasant culture. This means an important link with the past: the activity in fact dates back to the 1950s when Zucchi Bruno started working and turning the grapes of his own vineyard located in the prestigious area of Lambrusco di Sorbara doc.
This passion is then passed on to his son Davide and his wife Maura who, by renovating the cellar with the best technologies and transforming the vineyards, obtain optimal results on the product appreciated by a vast network of both Italian and foreign customers. Since 2010, the Company can also count on its youngest daughter Silvia, a graduate in Oenology at the ancient and renowned School of Oenology of Conegliano, whose passion and perseverance have brought her to the knowledge of various realities of Italian and European wineries, maturing in thus a vast experience on the ways of processing and production of wines. The attention to detail in every single operation has led the Zucchi farm to achieve a high quality standard in the Italian and foreign wine scene. In 2011 we decided to invest in the production of photovoltaic renewable energy, reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere to a minimum.
We have been producers for three generations, we pass all the experience by combining tradition and innovation in full respect of the land and the vines. To obtain the best organoleptic characteristics we try to apply manual processing techniques that respect the identity of each single vine, starting from pruning to harvest. Our wines must tell the story of our land.
